  • Periodontitis is a serious form of gum disease. It’s a bacterial infection that starts by inflaming the soft tissues around your teeth. Left untreated, it erodes the bone that supports your teeth, leading to mobility and tooth loss
  • Gum disease treatment will usually be carried out by a specialist who is qualified in the treatment and care of conditions such as periodontal disease. Your dentist may refer you to a specialist periodontist who can provide you with a detailed assessment and gum disease cure.Having been diagnosed with periodontal disease by your practitioner, the next step is to discuss the process of how to cure gum disease effectively. If caught in the early stages, the treatment will involve a procedure called scaling and root planing. This requires a method of removing the plaque and calculus pockets developed, followed by a deep clean and smoothing of the root surface. This simple course will help aid the teeth back to health.However, more advanced cases require detailed treatment. This can involve surgical treatment and/or medication depending on what is deemed the best course in how to treat gum disease for each individual.The treatment administered depends on to what extent you are suffering with gum disease. Your dentist or specialist practitioner will discuss the necessary course of action for you before beginning with any treatment.
